    This is the placement for the panels that you have sewn out (You also have the same photo in your colour chart). You will notice I have also included panels for those who have a 360 x 200 hoop for the awnings and the base of the bag.

     

    Sewing out the New York Machine Embroidery Design Set

     

    First of all, do not look to closely as this work as they are my first stitch outs.

     TIP I always start to stitch about half an inch down from the top of the panels and then reverse back over the stitches to the top, that way you should not get any movement.

     

    Zig zag stitch the New York machine embroidery designs

     

    Zig zag stitch over the satin stitch border in the same colour thread as you stitched the satin stitch border. (I am showing the zig zag stitch in a white cotton so you can clearly see what I am doing.)

    At this stage you should put those magnetic catches to the lining of the bag, which I normally do. I forgot! I realised this when I had already stitched the lining to the bag. To compensate for this, I foraged through my mother's, grandmother's and auntie's collections of buttons and found this divine metal button. I stitched the button on and used a hair band to keep the bag closed.
